This is the most frequently asked of all questions about Dandy Blend.
Please read all the way to the bottom for the complete answer.
Dandy Blend is made of the water-soluble extracts of five ingredients; three roots and two grains (barley and rye), not from the ingredients themselves. The ingredients are roasted separately and then combined in prescribed proportions, placed into a vat, covered with hot water, and allowed to steep for a prescribed period of time. The water, with the soluble portions of all the components, is separated from the grounds and spray dried. The remaining fine brown powder left after the water is driven off is what becomes Dandy Blend. All the gluten and other water-insoluble substances are left behind in the grounds to be composted.
Hence, the gluten from Barley and Rye, according to ELISA tests, is removed from Dandy Blend. Goosefoot Acres periodically submits samples of Dandy Blend to Elisa Technologies Laboratory in Florida, one of the most respected gluten testing labs in the United States, for analysis, and so far, every test has come back gluten-free.

A few people have reported experiencing symptoms of gluten ingestion. We realize that Dandy Blend, like any other food, may not be suitable for everyone. Each of us is physiologically different. Some medicines work for some, not for others. Some people can eat certain foods and others cannot. The same is true for beverages.
It is for this reason that we offer free samples so you can try it at no cost before investing in Dandy Blend. Please ask our customer service professionals, either by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (800-697-4858), to send you samples."
